the rule of threes

I tried to explain to Bassie the comedy rule of threes the other day in the car. The example I gave was pretty pathetic, though. Something like, “Pack your bags for the trip, kids! You’ll need bug spray, snacks, and a ten foot garden hose!”

Meh.

Bassie’s response: “Oh, okay, I get it. Like, ‘This restaurant has horrible service! The fish is underseasoned, the meat is raw, and they don’t serve their hamster heads with garlic ketchup!’”

And so, the student has surpassed the teacher…

    Oh my! We’d love to come up with a really hysterically funny and weird rule of 3′s ‘come back’ but she’s too good!! Brilliant, sweet, and funny too!
